we had a democratic president and a democratic majority in the house and nancy pelosi as speaker of the house and the time to have done something on gun control would have been then. but the first words that really made me think that something's wrong here is when nancy pelosi got up and speaking about george bush in their administration, that impeachment is off the table. it just blew my mind. >> bill: well, mine, too. mine too. we've talked about that, phillip. look, there's a lot of stuff that didn't get done then. those two years were the time to really push the agenda, right? and they didn't. but you know, that's water over the dam, if you will. now there's a new four years. there is a new opportunity and some new urgency and so you know, i think we have to focus on what we can get done now. >> caller: the thing that makes me angry is yes it is horrendous that those 20 children were killed in connecticut. but what about the thousands of innocent iraqi and afghan children who have been killed, you know, from war crimes in a legal war from the invasion of iraq. >> bill: yes yes.

that nancy pelosi and others are not done taxes, but want to move after the rich more, climbing over 50% is not a big leap, and leaving it just to the rich and thinking that the rest will not be affected -- >> right. neil: there's a lot more to come. >> right, and, you know, looking at the democrats' plan and the president's plan for spending over the next ten years, we know they want to tax the rich more. they want to take that rate up to 50% or so of the richest income. there's just not enough money there. they can't pay for these explosive spending levels that they foresee for the next ten years, so it's right in the sense they are going to come off new taxpayers if they can't bleed the rich anymore to fund big government, t the benefit of having the fiscal cliff behind us is that the argument is not about taxes. now we're talking about spending. republicans, leader mcconnell on the hill, speaker boehner say we're done. we solved the problem of baselines that are flux waiting every two years, we know where we are on the revenue side, and now all the fights need to come on spending
